My dear Sir

I am glad to find that you at last see your way to a day for coming here— and as it is the sooner the better in such a case. I shall hope to see you on either Tuesday the 17. th or Wedy the 18. th The worst is that I have to read a paper at the Antiquaries about some other flint implements on Thursday the 19. th and thus if you come on the Wednesday I should only have the pleasure of your company for one evening here— and if you come on the Tuesday, there is some little risk of your not being in time for the 5.20 train from Euston to Kings Langley— In case of your missing it there is however another *train at 5.45— which would take you to Boxmoor & give you a short evening here I suppose you must go to Kew for one evening; but would not Saturday do for your return— If so, please come here on Wedy & stay till then and we can go to the Antiquaries together— If not, arrange to come either on Tuesday or Wednesday as falls in best with your views & let me know by which train you will come that I may send to meet you— I shall be in town on Tuesday myself— Davis has a paper for the Ant s on the 19. th on some flint implements from Babylon.

In haste believe me | yours very sincerely | John Evans.
